The camera goes with me, even the early saturday morning kids swim lessons -when I'm half awake. The pool surroundings are painted up in the old-fashioned way, color everywhere, but the seat was the most striking in the early sunshine.

I have twin 8 year old boys and I am confident I am going to get some good candid portraits, even if I work the camera to bits. So the above photo series was the result. Better concentration on portraits next time I promise. :roll:

Carzee:

I like the use of colors, they really jump out of the image. And the composition is great. Good usse of the topic.

vito,

I think that the seat was flat, but was distorted in PS! this makes it look a little out of focus. cool idea

Stephen...

I was going to comment on this photograph when suddenly your Avitar jumped on my attention. My tummy hurts from the guffaws and laughs, excellent Avitar!

And this photo blows me away too. Am I imagining things or are both of you from down under? Stephen, I know it says you are from Deutchland, but I'll bet you have visited down under. Down under mates must be doing something right (assuming that my guess is correct). In any event, great photo and funny avitar.
